Fun Facts on Why Every Home Needs A Rug
From absorbing sounds to reducing the cost of insulation, carpets are the stylish and pragmatic soul of a home
After a long day, nothing feels cosier than sinking your toes in a soft and lush rug. For the sophisticated consumer of today, a rug is more than just an ornamental item of home décor; rather, it is an accent that has great utility value. Whether to add warmth to a marble floor or to style to hardwood one, area rugs come with a host of advantages for your living space.
Helps in noise reduction: One of the biggest advantages of using floor rugs is their ability to absorb sound as opposed to hardwood flooring, which reflects the noise. A boon for a home with children, the thicker the rug, the more muffled the sound will be. A thick rug will also lead to echo reduction. Natural fibres such as wool and jute absorb not only the pitter-patter of feet, but also sound emissions that filter in from the street and neighbouring homes. Our collection of hand-knotted rugs is perfect to keep your rooms quiet.
Acts as thermal insulators: Turn down the heating and save on utility bills with carpets that function as natural heat insulators. Carpets are much more effective than hardwood flooring in keeping a room warm, thanks to their superior heat trapping abilities. The greater the thickness of fibers and the pile strength, the greater will be the insulating effect of the area carpets. Rugs keep the temperature even throughout the year. Using a carpet is energy efficient too and is an environmentally friendly choice for your home. Choose Jaipur Rugs Biscayne range of luxe wool rugs to keep your home warm and fresh during winters.
Protects the flooring: There is no better way to keep your marble floor scratch free and your hardwood floor fresh than by using best area rugs, especially in high traffic areas. Resilient fibers such as jute or hemp are hardy options.

Adds comfort underfoot: Your home is a place to relax and unwind, and there is no better way of doing it than going barefoot at the end of the day.

Creates a focal point in a home: A carpet adds to the visual splendour of a home, tying in different aspects of the interiors. The use of bold colours and busy designs draw the eye to the rug and can completely transform a room, such as Jaipur Rug’s stunning Lacuna collection hand-crafted from the finest wool and silk.
Increases safety: The soft cushion provided by wall-to-wall carpeting or rugs in the room of children or a grandparents are invaluable for their safety. With a carpet affixed with a rug gripper, hard and slippery floors no longer pose a risk to your loved ones.
